Risk Management for Housing Associations

Our risk management services will help you to protect your business, reduce your claims, and make life easier. Our expertise in social housing means we understand your regulatory framework and the complex issues you face.

Social Housing Risk Managment

We provide a comprehensive outsourced risk management service for housing associations. We’ll assess your risks, help you mitigate the likelihood and extent of claims against you, and provide the training you need to maintain that level of protection.

Our services include policy and framework development, training, awareness-raising workshops, and supplier & partner assessments. We’ll look at risks such as property insurance, personal accident, liability, financial risks and tenants' contents, plus emerging risks such as cyber-related issues and environmental exposure.

Risk health checks

Regular risk audits will ensure the ongoing effectiveness of your risk management strategy – and provide peace of mind for you. We’ll help to protect your staff, your tenants & leaseholders, your reputation, and the future of your business.

Our specialist risk practitioners will thoroughly evaluate your current practices, exposing gaps and highlighting areas for improvement. They’ll check the types and levels of cover you have to ensure you’re fully covered, including specialist covers (such as nursing and care). We may even be able to provide insurance you didn’t think was available.

Fire & flood risks

We will play a lead role in reducing your fire risks and mitigating the effects of floods. We’ll help you raise tenant awareness of hazards and prove that the safety of your occupants is your top priority.


Our security professionals will conduct a thorough assessment of your insurance cover and operational threats. In line with best practice, they’ll help you implement stringent but cost-effective security measures, including a comprehensive fraud response plan.

Risk training

From high-level executive briefings to detailed front-line risk training, we provide training in a range of risk areas including health & safety, fire, fraud, security, personal accidents and behavioural safety. We’ll help your staff understand that the little things they do every day can have a significant impact on protecting your organisation.

Business continuity management

We’ll assess your current business continuity management strategies. We’ll test your plan’s effectiveness, enhance it where necessary, and conduct ongoing reviews to ensure that you remain comprehensively protected.
